On Losing It


Dear Lucy,

Today is Monday. And not only is it a Monday, it’s also the first Monday of my Christmas vacation, which means you and I are staying home together all day.

All. Day.

On the one hand, I am incredibly thankful for the fact that I can now do this without my anxiety following me around all the time, shouting at me like a toddler amped up on sugar. On the other hand, I’ve got a real-life toddler (that would be you) following me around all the time, shouting like she’s amped up on sugar. (Bananas, not cookies. I tend to forget bananas are like nature’s version of Chip’s Ahoy. Also, you’re obsessed with them.)

My Favorite Moments of 2015

I've always loved the idea of sending out Christmas cards that include family updates from the previous year. I don't know how to do it without feeling like a humble bragger because, seriously, who lists anything but the highlights? Still, I love to receive them so I thought I'd share some of our family's favorite moments from 2015 on the blog today. And what an amazing year it has been!

Thirty Days to Thirty by Courtney Psak: A Review

Happy December! The Christmas season starts pretty early for me because I like to get a jump start on cheesy Hallmark movies and hot chocolate, but now it's finally official and I can celebrate without getting the side-eye from anyone (i.e. my husband).

Today, I'm reviewing Courtney Psak's debut novel Thirty Days to Thirty and I'm excited to share it with you! So let's jump right in and get started.
